7th ICASE World Conference on STEM Education

The International Council of Associations for Science Education (ICASE) would like to invite scholars and practitioners around the world to attend this global gala event. The conference participants include policy makers, curriculum developers, scientists, science and university educators and researchers, science teacher association officers and members, and primary / secondary STEM teachers to share research results and engage in discussions about the latest developments in STEM education. 

Established in 1973 with support from UNESCO, the objectives of ICASE are to extend and enhance the work of its member organizations; provide and support activities and opportunities to enhance formal, non-formal, and informal STEM education at all levels worldwide; establish and maintain an international communication network; and encourage and support the establishment and development of professional STEM organizations, especially where none currently exists in a country / region. 

The ICASE 2023 world conference is also a celebration of the 50th anniversary of her establishment. It is a global event and is considered as a unique opportunity for all STEM researchers and educators to reach out, connect, and share their best practices. This is a conference that will reflect views and perspectives of STEM education globally, and aims to enable all attendees to use the ideas locally upon their return. For this reason, we urge all ICASE friends who have contributed to ICASE in the past, who still support ICASE today, and who will contribute in the future, to take part in this important conference by submitting their proposals (2,000 – 3,000 words) on or before 31 October, 2022. 

The conference will be held in the Gulf region at the British University in Dubai in collaboration with Amity University, Dubai, United Arab Emirates from 27 - 30 March 2023. 

We look forward to receiving you in Dubai, UAE.
